He comes from a great family company at Leighton Broadcasting and we look forward to welcoming him to the Hubbard family and Hubbard Broadcasting.”
Senne has been with Leighton Broadcasting for 21 years, serving as morning show host, Program Director, Operations Manager and Director of Programming. Most recently Senne was the General Manager for Leighton Broadcasting in Winona.
“I have admired Hubbard Broadcasting for a very long time for its quality of broadcasting, belief in local talent, helping its clients, and its dedication to the community,” commented Senne. “I am proud to be joining Hubbard Broadcasting and can’t wait to work with our staff and clients in Alexandria and Wadena. My family is incredibly excited to make the beautiful lakes area our home!”
